Generics were introduced in Java 5.0, but turns out that we only require 1.3 in our own source. Given that 5.0 was introduced in 2004, isn't it about time we relax our requirements and update our code to use the new features of 5.0? The change to our package namespace presents a good opportunity to do so.
Generics in Java are just glorified syntactic sugar, but they /do/ help
the compiler to produce marginally better error messages ... so as far
as I'm concerned, let's do that.
